Prior to ACPHealth, Dr. Wilson founded, led as the CEO, and after 5 years exited CapRock Health and CapRock Physicians Group (a niche acute care health system focused on Micro-Hospitals and other “front door” models with development in 3 Western States) where to date he led the first and full accreditation of an independent acute care hospital in Texas under the new 2017 CMS regulations. Prior to CapRock Health Dr. Wilson founded and led the first Direct Primary Care Clinic in the Brazos Valley.

Originally from South Carolina, and after living in 11 states from Coast to Coast, Dr. Wilson says, "I have never felt more at home than in the Great State of Texas where we currently reside. Outside of work I enjoy working with local law enforcement as a Reserve Brazos County Precinct One
Deputy Constable where I’m proud to serve under Constable Jeff Reeves, and as the Physician for the Bryan SWAT Team. My greatest joy is spending time with my family. I have been married to my wife Heidi for over 23 years, and we have been richly blessed with three beautiful daughters. The Ladies of the Wilson household enjoy doing just about anything outside including camping and hiking, and I participate, sometimes willingly."
